Pokemon Sun and Moon are out everywhere, and the hype is real. I have been playing the games nonstop since they came out, and I noticed a lot of new features that are amazing. That’s why I’m going to be sharing my Top 5 New Features in Sun and Moon. I’m Pokemon Insider, and let’s get started. 5. SOS battles are new to Sun and Moon, and it is when a wild Pokemon calls for help from other wild Pokemon. The feature could get annoying if you are just trying to catch a Pokemon, but it is incredibly helpful for shiny hunters. If you want a specific Pokemon, all you have to do is find one, use an adrenaline orb, and wait for more encounters.

Eventually, you should run into a shiny, and I am really glad they introduced such a feature. 4. In Pokemon Sun and Moon, you now have the ability to choose what happens to a newly captured Pokemon if you have a full party. Instead of automatically going to the PC, you can choose to replace one of your current party Pokemon or send it to the PC. As someone who likes to catch a lot of Pokemon during my playthroughs, this feature helped immensely if I wanted to add a new catch to my team.

3. Pokemon Refresh is Sun and Moon’s version of Pokemon Amie from generation 6, but it is a major improvement on the feature. Pokemon Refresh now has the ability to cure status conditions between battles, which is incredibly helpful. Now you don’t have to worry about carrying around a billion different healing items with you at all times in the odd chance you get frozen in a random NPC battle. I also like that the game will suggest when to use Pokemon Refresh, and the feature is overall amazing. 2. I have always enjoyed Free For All battles in Pokemon, and now with Battle Royales, we have the option to do it in an official format. Prior to battle royales, we had to go into a multi battle and go out of your way to make sure you don’t end up with the two last remaining Pokemon on the same side.

Battle Royales allow you to have a true, four player free for all in Pokemon, and I love them. My favorite new feature in Sun and Moon has to be PokeRide. HMs in Pokemon were probably the most frustrating things ever, and I am so glad they are no longer a part of the games. PokeRide allows you to perform what would have been the work of HMs at any time you choose. I love that you don’t have to carry around a Pokemon specifically used for HMs or teach your best Pokemon Flash.

PokeRide is my favorite addition to Pokemon Sun and Moon, and I can’t wait to keep exploring Alola with it. Well, that’s it for my list.
